Former President Trump is going to have to start submitting documents regarding the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack according to a new statement released by the leaders of the House select committee investigating the attack.
Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) released a statement on Friday noting that Trump’s counsel has been informed of the deadline that they will need to provide the documents. Originally, Trump had been supposed to submit all of the documents by Friday, according to the terms of the subpoena.
The members of the committee unanimously agreed for a subpoena to be sent to Trump for records and testimony during their final public hearing.
Thompson and Cheney noted that Trump has been subpoenaed and is expected to sit for a deposition on Nov. 14. They also added that they have been communicating with Trump’s counsel regarding the subpoena which goes over 19 different areas of inquiry that the committee is interested in asking the former President about. These all relate to his attempts to overturn the 2020 election.
During the public hearings, several testimonies have been heard in the examination of what led to the efforts to overturn the election results and the insurrection.
